Thumbs up turning to the danger zone


Hello All I'm new

With all the private military contracting like BLACKWATER,along with the other private contractors.And since there are few jobs left in this country we are forced to go where the money is! My oldest is going crazy because he can't get work. He's a union worker and they are too much $$,All the work is going non union.So he is SOL!!
So out of desperation he is looking to go to look at going.Right now were gathering information to get him on with one of the construction companies.so he's going to iraq to weld pipe while the bullets and bombs.THAT'S WHERE THE WORK IS!!!
That Government is the only one with any money and it's going to supporting the troops.And right now they are doing EVERYTHING over there!!!
The banks have stopped the money flow,everyday companies are downsizingEVERYONE IS FEELING IT!
This info is now hitting the news A LITTLE trickle of information leaks out about what's really going on over there.

To bad he isnt a public sector worker. I would love to see the ranks of the last bastion of Unions substantially reduced.

True true. I cant even get circuit boards built properly because all of the qualified assemblers have been laid off.

Isn't capitalism just wonderful?!

Just as a sidenote : I support the concept of a union as a way to protect workers rights within a capitalist environment, but modern day politicised unions do more harm than good.

Right, because I suppose recessions would NEVER happen in a socialized economy. Beyond silly.

I wasn't referring to the recession itself but rather to the anti-social and just plain stupid reaction of corporations to the recession (eg. firing their best workers because they're more expensive).

Thats not the problem it this case. The drawback in production requests has caused many of the board houses in this area to either close, or to contract dramatically. So now when you try to get a PCB made you have to go through one of the discount houses that have less experienced labor. Its all a function of market forces, not stupid CEOs as you say.
